IDGTE’s 2014 Annual Report

and Accounts

2013 Operational report

The Institution has compiled this unique report since 1923 and continues today to bring a compilation of independent “user focus” data for conventional prime mover types, as well as expanding to report on alternative fuels and comparison to alternative prime mover technologies. Prime movers for industrial, marine and rail traction are applications of interest.

Its value depends on the quality of input and we encourage all those interested in the compiled data on a worldwide basis, to participate.It is not necessary to be a member of the Institution to contribute or to receive a copy of the report.

Return Forms and Guidance Notes can be downloaded here.

The 2015 IDGTE technology seminar and 68th annual luncheon is to be held at a new venue - Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.

The event will have a new, updated format too. We are introducing a morning session of seminars/workshops covering a range of subjects so there should be something which is relevant to everyone.

This will be followed by the usual style luncheon.  Our  principal guest this year is Patrick Kniveton, Immediate Past President of IMechE, who is currently a Visiting Professor - Engineering Engagement at the University of Derby and  Head of Engineering Skills & Knowledge Management at Rolls-Royce.  Our guest speaker is  Simon Weston OBE, Falkland's War Veteran, author, public speaker and charity supporter.

Make a diary date now - and be there.  Help us make “the best luncheon in the business” even better.  Tickets will be available on application to the office.
